You bring up pay like we're the only ones to have raised rates. Republic will surpass us soon. Others have closed or are closing the gap. We aren't the only game in town, and Delta's actions show we aren't the "gold standard". However, I do care about my job and being a professional. I will take care of my customers, even if it costs the company a few extra dollars.
Iím more compassionate than most to the pax and I agree that taking care of them is taking care of the carrier - even if it costs some extra fuel - but you should realize they are not your customers. Delta is your customer.

That's fine, but if pax don't buy tickets, Delta doesn't exist. My first responsibility is safety, second my crew, third pax, then Delta's bottom line.

The heck they arenít. And the heck they are. I personally know one person who flies to ORD mainly from LGA, but if OO is operating it, the customer goes to JFK to be on 9E. Thatís one passenger for 9E.

So the only way youíll restrict your apu use is if you get a financial benefit. Nice

I'll still put my pax ahead of a couple more bucks on a hypothetical profit sharing check. My conscience wouldn't let them cook in a 100+ degree cabin with no airflow.

When Iím on mainline, I love making a spectacle of myself by using the passenger briefing card to fan myself. Shortly after I do so, others follow suit and then very shortly, they succumb to turning the blasted thing on.

The guys up front are to busy comparing profit sharing to worry about pax comfort
